Welcome to our Virtual Open Day

A warm welcome to Harris Academy Bermondsey. We created this virtual open day for 2020 in place of our usual open days, which we were unable to have this year because of Covid-19.


Meet Rebecca Iles-Smith, Principal

Rebecca Iles Smith webHarris Academy Bermondsey is a girls' school with drive and ambition in the heart of London. Ofsted rated us as Outstanding in every one of their categories in November 2019.

We are passionate about making a difference to the lives of our young women, ensuring that they have every opportunity to succeed by identifying and nurturing each one's individual talents.

Our well-qualified teachers and highly effective support staff are committed to providing an education that ensures every girl achieves excellence and becomes a leader, within a safe and happy learning environment.

I hope this page gives you a flavour of life at a school as rich and vibrant as HAB, but please do come along to one of our live online events too, if you can, in order to meet our teachers in person.

In the meantime, a good way to get a feeling for daily HAB life is to read our school blog or follow our Twitter feed @HABermondsey We look forward to welcoming you.
